Don Matthews never met a CZ he didn't like. When he passed in 2014, we revived the CZ World Championships in his name. DMCZWC legitimized the CZ World Championships for the first time by making the other countries from around the world, by creating the CZech-Motorpool. They are an American group of CZ enthusiasts that sponsor "fly-in" competitors on the U.S. based CZs.
While we have all these CZ people together, we decided to team up with DIRT ILLUSTRATED Magazine and honor people who, through their personal sacrifice, opened CZ shops so we could have a place to buy CZs. This is something we will continue to do each year and expand on it to include people who made history on CZs.
